Also, our friend Casper tagged us to do this fun Photo game but Tanner said he wants to do that one tomorrow.

Today I will show you what we got from our good friend Luckie Girl. The package is for Tanner because his birthday is this saturday, he will be FOUR.

Mom had to help him, he doesn't have package opening skills like Miss Sunshade.

Inside was a note from Luckie girl and it said that Tanner should share with ME, especially because he is FAT!!! (Mom said I have a way of reading between the lines)

So in that package was:

This SUPER cool ball and rope toy, this is now in three pieces, but we love each piece!!


They look soo delicious I couldn't wait for Mom to open them. In fact, they looked so delicious that even I made a Doofus Face!

Excuse my momentary fall from grace, but I just LOVE treats!!

Here is Tanner with the rope toy, you can see how yucky his eye looked before I fixed it. I mean, before his miraculous recovery. ahem.


Tomorrow Tanner will answer Casper's poll and show pictures of MORE presents that he got!!

Anything with a tennis ball attached is the coolest thing ever. By the way, Joe, I totally think your moment of weakness is sweet. But tough sweet, you know.

Excellent answers to the sports questions! And I'd have that tennis ball beheaded from that rope in 2 seconds flat!!

Tanner is very nice to share his barkday pressies!

Sorry to hear your package opening skills are not up to par. At Christmas time, I get to open all my packages, and I know which ones are mine (for some reason, each of my packages have a biscuit inside). In anycase, it's quite fun. And those toys look greaaaaat! Thanks for your well wishes too - Mati is doing well and I'm moving along as best as possible! Thanks again, love Rocky

Hey Joey,
Gee...I never said Tanner was fat.. LOL LOL LOL!! Anyhoo, I am glad he shared. I think that silly toy must have some kind of manufacturing defect. How could it be in 3 pieces when it was in one piece when we picked it out? Hmm...
Can't wait to see more of Tanner's pressie. I just hope he remembers to share!

Great Job on your answers, Joe!

HAPPY BIRTHDAYH, TANNER!! What cool presents!

I read the part in the note about sharing the treats with Joe, Tanner. It was still nice of you to do that, on your birthday, especially. Did you write that note, Joe? Hehe!

Wow, quite observant of Luckie.

Is NASCAR really a sport? Can my ma ape just drive around in circles instead of going to the gym?

That Luckie Girl sure knows how to buy presents! Lots of good treats for her boys! (Good of her to remind Tannerito to share ~ but I think he would anyway he loves you sooooo).

Glad YOU had to answer the sports questions, I couldn't have answered half of them.

About your momentary Doofusness ~ I think it's cool you're getting in touch with your inner Doofus. We all have one, it's just that Tanner is SO in touch that's all we see.

Goober love,

Hi, Joe.

Hey pals, all that sport stuff is just Greek to me! J2 supports a cruddy UK football team (the REAL football not your silly version) called Queens Park Rangers. Yep, no-one's ever heard of them. They're totally crap. J x

I think you have more of a treat face than a Doofus face. Remember all Tanner's presents are Yours.
